Biography

Botswana's Skinflint deliver heavy metal in the vein of classic Iron Maiden, without veering completely away from African musical tradition. Their songs are likewise based on African fantasy and mythology, thereby expanding the metal universe by a few more gods, kings, and demons. The band's releases "IKLWA" and "Massive Destruction" are considered pioneering examples of blending traditional heavy metal with African elements.

The band will release their 3rd album, "Dipoko", in December 2012.
